Vinho Verde



Provam Vinho Verde is a classic "green wine" made from 70% Alvarinho and 30% Trajadura. It is a light and fresh wine.

It is a typical Vinho Verde white wine, with a fruity aroma, but dry, fresh and bubbly in the mouth. The fact that it is bubbly is understood by some to mean that it is slightly sparkling. No CO2 has been added here, so it is not sparkling. The sparkling impression is simply due to the fact that Alvarinho is a very acidic grape, so the sparkling feeling on the tongue are due to a very fruit-bound acid and are part of what makes the wine a refreshing experience.

Det er en typisk Vinho Verde hvidvin, med en frugtig aroma, men tør, frisk og perlende i munden. Det at den er perlende forstås af nogen som om at den er let mousserende. Her er der ikke tilsat CO2, så den er ikke mousserende. Det perlende indtryk skyldes simpelthen, at Alvarinho er en meget syreholdig drue, så prikkerne på tungen skyldes en meget frugtbundet syre og er en del af det der gør vinen til en forfriskende oplevelse.

General grape descriptions


Originally from the north of the Vinho Verde region, the Trajadura makes wines with lower acidity and higher alcoholic strength than the other Vinho Verde grapes. This makes it a great candidate for blending in this cool, moist part of the country, where excessive acidity and low alcohol can be a problem even with vines trained in an efficient, modern way. Trajadura is a fairly aromatic variety, with gentle flavours of peach, apricot, apple and ripe pear and a pleasant touch of orange blossom. it is used in popular blends with Alvarinho, and with Loureiro and Arinto.


This northern grape is one of Portugal's finest and most characterful. It was one of the first Portuguese grape varieties to be bottled as a single variety. It's full-bodied, subtly fragrant white wines are easy to recognize, their complex but delicate aromas reminiscent of peach, lemon, passion fruit, lychee, orange zest, jasmin, orange blossom, and lemon balm. The wines are delicious young, but they can also age well, often for ten years or more. Alvarinho grows mostly along the River Minho, right up in the north of the Vinho Verde region - the northern Vinho Verde sub-regions of Monção and Melgaço are its famous heartlands.
